We just met up with T-Mobile during CTIA Wireless 2011 to check out the brand-spanking new T-Mobile G2x by LG, an Android 2.2 (Froyo) smartphone that packs a punch. Seriously, this puppy insanely quick thanks to its dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. In our hands, applications literally felt like they were opening and closing instantly. T-Mobile’s 4G network helps matters too, of course, and the homepage loaded up in just a few seconds. Hit the jump for some more hands-on impressions of the G2x and don’t forget to check out our full gallery of photos.

In the hand, the G2x definitely feels like a high-end premium device. It felt sturdy and well built, and while the display seemed to attract fingerprints pretty easily, that’s not necessarily a big deal. As we noted above, this thing is blazing fast at opening applications, which will no doubt help users take advantage of NVIDIA’s Tegra Zone gaming portal as quickly as. It also packs an 8-megapixel camera, which seemed to take some pretty solid shots, and there’s a forward-facing camera for video chats as well. It might be too early to say, but the G2x could definitely end up being one of our favorite T-Mobile smartphones of the first half of 2011.
